Our Community Needs
Every four years, Komen Greater Iowa conducts a comprehensive assessment of breast health and breast cancer needs throughout our service area. This assessment includes an overview of demographic and breast cancer statistics that highlight target areas, groups or issues and help us to make informed decisions on how we can use the resources our supporters provide to make the greatest impact on breast cancer in our service area. This assessment is referred to as the Community Profile and helps us to establish focused granting priorities, target education activities, drive public policy efforts, strengthen partnerships and sponsorships, and establish direction for marketing and outreach efforts.
The Community Profile also helps us identify a long-term vision for the work to be done in our service area. Understanding current needs helps balance priorities with available staff and volunteer resources so that realistic action plans are created and can be achieved.
